I would've liked to hear what the boys could've done with Cash's "Ring of Fire", "Cocaine Blues", and "Give My Love to Rose". In fact, from a purely lyrical standpoint and given the volume of covers performed, I'm kind of surprised at the lack of Johnny Cash tunes over the years. It seems to me (maybe I'm crazy) to be somewhat of a natural fit.

Also, I shudder to think of what Brent could have done with Stevie Wonder's "Superstitious". Can anybody else hear Ain't Superstitious>Superstitious? I can almost imagine it.

Jokerman is a fantastic call.

To close out the night:

space>Discipline (Throbbing Gristle)>Indiscipline (King Crimson)>Heroin (Velvet Underground)>I Want Candy (Bow Wow Wow) E: Paranoid (Black Sabbath)

Not exactly the up with people on patchouli show (that was handled by Phish), but it might have challenged a few listeners, as opposed to Jerry ballad, Bobby rocker, Chuck Berry Tune, Dylan encore.
